The following is a delicious, highly-flavored recipe that my family loves for Moroccan Beef Tagine using the ras el hanout spice mix.
Spice Rub for meat: 1 level tablespoon *each* of ras el hanout, cumin, ground cinnamon, ginger, and sweet paprika.
Mix all spices together.
1.5 lbs of stewing beef (or lamb), cut into 2" chunks
3-4 Tablespoons olive oil
One yellow onion, chopped
1 (14-oz) can garbanzo beans
1 (14-oz) can fire-roasted tomatoes
4 cups stock (beef or vegetable)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 butternut squash (seeded and cut into 1" chunks)
4 oz. pitted prunes (cut in half)
½ cup chopped cilantro leaves
Mix all of the spices together in a zip-lock bag and add the meat chunks and massage the spice mixture throughout the surface of the meat. Refrigerate and wait at least 4 hours or overnight before cooking.
To cook, heat the olive oil in a Tagine or dutch oven and brown the spiced meat over a medium heat for a few minutes.Read more ›
Ras el Hanout starts off with strong, curry-like flavors that betrays it's Indian origins followed by subtle, traditional African flavors such as nigella and rosebuds. Although I was very pleased with this blend I do think that it is over-priced. I shop for most of my spices at ethnic markets (mostly Indian and Middle Eastern) and find their mixtures to be not only fresh but REALLY affordable. I am using this mixture with my new tagine and if I use it often enough I will seek out an African grocery store that has a similar product at a price that Moroccan expatriates will be willing to pay. If you don't live near a city that is large enough to have that type of store, then I think that this is the best Ras el Hanout available on-line. As a matter of fact, a tangine cookbook that I bought recently singled out Zamouri as THE source for this delicious, exotic blend.
I personally enjoy it most on seared ahi tuna.
Wolfert says Ras El Hanout can be made from anywhere between 19 and 26 or even more spices. Some are not safe to ingest on their own, so you need to either buy a pre-made blend or use a simpler recipe with safer spices; she offers too options. But I wanted the original, so I bought this!
This version tastes very similar to the authentic version I purchased in Casablanca in the medina, but the description says it lacks Spanish Fly beetle powder, which is a supposed aphrodisiac and illegal in the U.S. Bummer. But buying it in Morocco may not get you the beetle either: Some Web reports say it has also been illegal in Morocco since the 1990s. In any case, Zamouri Spices' version tastes like the version I ate in Morocco and is absolutely delicious.
